my anxiety has been causing me chest tightness for the last couple days and it got worse a moment ago when I got super super anxious and thought I was having a heart attack but it turned out to just be my panic attack. does this happen to any one else?

      This used to happen to me a lot! I got over it by saying I'm not having a heart attack, I am healthy and young or whatever would apply to you, unfortunately I did gain different symptoms after getting over that fear but hopefully it works for you as well. I can't tell you how many hospital trips I made before I got sick of it and started convincing myself I'm okay

      That happened to me around July 4th. I got some bad news and I geuss it's what led me to expirence my first panic attack and it sucked. Lowkey though I was dying.

      It can happen yeah. I recommend some anxiety medications if you can. I'm in buspar which isnt perfect but its been much better

        @Lucas.exe yeah I'm on Clonazepam right now but I think I might need something different

          @micah_1234 no shame in that sometimes some meds just dont work. Buspar is non addictive if that's a concern and I'm taking 15 three times a day which is a bit inconvenient but it works for me. It doesnt help with phobias but its cools most of the basic daily stuff for me. Other than that trying to relax your body or sitting up straight and tall and shoulders back might open your chest a bit. Maybe that tension anxiety makes in your body is making the pain develop
